Queensland Child Protection Week 2015

By promoting the value of children and focusing attention on the issues of child abuse and neglect, the objectives of Child Protection Week are to:

  • raise the profile of all issues connected with child protection, including child abuse prevention, treatment, research, education, service provision and support for children, young people and families
  • create a statewide umbrella focus for child protection allowing government and non-government agencies to present a cooperative and coordinated community oriented campaign
  • support and value professionals and volunteer child protection and family support workers by providing key information and resources
  • offer a framework to recognise advances in the field, and thereby contribute to better outcomes for all children and young people, especially those who have been harmed or are at risk of harm.

Child protection and domestic and family violence interface project:

The Queensland Child Protection Commission of Inquiry has raised a number of issues which relate to domestic and family violence and how best to respond to the issues for children, young people and families at the nexus with the child protection system.

Given the complexities of child abuse and domestic and family violence for society as a whole, the prevalence of these issues in our communities and the need for holistic and integrated responses, practitioners in non-government organisations require the support and resources necessary to navigate this complex area of practice. 

PeakCare has begun a project focusing on the interface between child protection and domestic and family violence.
